Wine Advocate 90
"An amazing wine made from 100% Grenache organically farmed and aged four months in French and American cooperage, the 2013 Tinto shows boisterous and exuberant black cherry/kirsch liqueur notes, medium to full body, terrific purity and exuberance. This is a delicious bistro-style fruit bomb that is pure and succulent. Talk about hedonism! Drink it over the next several years."
The vineyards are located a few miles south and west of Priorat, within the Terra Alta DO in Catalunya’s Tarragona province in northeastern Spain. In this remote region, the winemaking tradition dates back to the Romans, around the 2nd or 3rd Century. The vineyards are located near the town of Batea, situated at 356 meters (1,168 ft.) elevation. The soils are composed of limestone and clay. Grown in Terra Alta, where Garnacha Blanca was born. Ludovicus wines come from estate owned vineyards and organically grown grapes.
For climate, the average temperature from April-October is 67.3ºF. The hot days and warm-to-moderate night temperatures make Terra Alta a drier and warmer region than Montsant or Priorat. The low average yearly rainfall of 16.3 inches is less than neighboring regions.
